Nope... I've been riding for the last 20 years or so.. never did go to the MSF class. However, I ride better protected than 99% of all the riders out there. I do not ride without full leathers... either a one piece track suit or a two piece zippered suit from Dainese, Vanson or Ku****ani.Ultra-HOG said:Nox! You be careful with that thing! You did take the basic and the advanced D.O.T. Motorcycle Safety Course - right? You cant ride it until you pass both of them! And you must wear a helmet and the propper riding gear, understand young man!! I don't wanna hear no excuses....
Sorry, just being a dad.
Very, very nice bike! Congratulations and enjoy it while being safe.
Actually, there is much truth in humor, sometimes. My feeble attempt at humor actually has a serious side. I have been riding for a long time and have had my share of mishaps. Many of them, in hind site, were my fault and were preventable. I took the DOT MSF class about three or four years ago and it absolutely changed the way that I ride and the way that I drive. I am a far safer rider now than I was for many years, I just didn't know or understand what I was doing wrong that was so dangerous. I can't say enough good things about it. If you have not taken the course, please, do whatever it takes to take it. It can make the difference between life and death - no kidding!
Dad, er, Ultra-HOG
First you have class for owning a RL. Then you show us this. The Factory is not the fastest when compared to an inline 4. But twins eat there asses in the corners. Great bike. I have been eyeballin the same one at the Aprilia shop down the hill. You picked the best bike.Nox said:Just rolled in with my newest toy, an Apilia Mille Factory V-Twin. Full Akrapovich exhaust.
